Dhol pathak group crowdfund for Deepali’s treatment

Deepali Dhomse, a 16-year-old girl from Dombivali, Maharashtra, had fallen from a crowded local train. She hails from a middle-class family, and her parents can not afford the cost of medical treatment. In order to raise funds for Deepali's treatment, 'Adishakti', a dhol pathak group from Dombiwali, has started crowdfunding. Deepali was also a one-of-the member of this dhol pathak group


Deepali Dhomse had met with an accident between Diva and Koper railway stations on the central railway, Mumbai on April 15. Deepali was immediately rushed to a private hospital, where she is currently undergoing treatment.

Deepali hails from a lower-middle-class family, and the family can not afford the huge costs of treatment, so ‘Adishakti’– a dhol pathak group,  has started crowdfunding for her treatment as she was also a one-of-the member of the group.  

While speaking to My Medical Mantra, Prajkta Deshpande, head of the  Adishakti dhol pathak group, said, “Doctors informed us that Deepali has suffered brain injuries, and there is a severe damage to her brain. The right side of her brain is swollen, and the left side is not functioning properly. She has suffered spine injury as well. She is still unconscious, and her treatment would go on for almost one-and-a-half year.”

Prajkta further added, “Deepali stays with her mother and two sisters. Daily expenditure on her medicine is around Rs 10,000, which Deepali’s family cannot manage. So, we have started crowdfunding for her treatment. Till now, we have gathered Rs 55,000 through crowdfunding. Even a small contribution would help for Deepali’s treatment.”
